    Researchers hack Verizon device, turn it into mobile spy station

    Jim Finkle
    NEW YORK — Reuters
    Published Monday, Jul. 15 2013, 5:58 AM EDT
    Last updated Monday, Jul. 15 2013, 5:59 AM EDT

    Two security experts said they have figured out how to spy on Verizon Wireless mobile phone customers by hacking into devices the U.S. carrier sells to boost wireless signals indoors.

    The finding, which the experts demonstrated to Reuters and will further detail at two hacking conferences this summer, comes at a time of intense global debate about electronic privacy, after top-secret U.S. surveillance programs were leaked by a former National Security Agency contractor, Edward Snowden, last month.

    “This is not about how the NSA would attack ordinary people. This is about how ordinary people would attack ordinary people,” said Tom Ritter, a senior consultant with the security firm iSEC Partners.

    Verizon said it has updated the software on its signal-boosting devices, known as femtocells or network extenders, to prevent hackers from copying the technique of the two experts.

    But Ritter said motivated hackers can still find other ways to hack the femtocells of Verizon, as well as those offered by some 30 carriers worldwide to their customers.

    Femtocells, which act as tiny cellphone towers, can be purchased directly from Verizon for $250 (U.S.). Used models can be obtained online for about $150.

    Ritter and his colleague, Doug DePerry, demonstrated for Reuters how they can eavesdrop on text messages, photos and phone calls made with an Android phone and an iPhone by using a Verizon femtocell that they had previously hacked.

    They declined to disclose how they had modified the software on the device, saying they do not want to make it any easier for criminals to figure out similar ways to hack femtocells.

    The two said they plan to give more elaborate demonstrations two weeks from now at the Black Hat and Def Con hacking conferences in Las Vegas. More than 15,000 security professionals and hackers are expected to attend those conferences, which feature talks on newly found bugs in communications systems, smart TVs, mobile devices and computers that run facilities from factories to oil rigs.

    Verizon Wireless released a Linux software update in March that prevents its network extenders from being compromised in the manner reported by Ritter and DePerry, according to company spokesman David Samberg.

    “The Verizon Wireless Network Extender remains a very secure and effective solution for our customers,” Samberg said in a statement. He said there have been no reports of customers being impacted by the bug that the researchers had identified. The company is a joint venture between Verizon Communications Inc and Vodafone Group Plc.

    Samberg said his company uses an internal security team as well as outside firms to look for vulnerabilities in the devices it sells, before and after they are released.

    Still, the two researchers said they are able to use the hacked femtocell to spy on Verizon phones even after Verizon released that update because they had modified the device before the company pushed out the software fix.

    The researchers built their “proof of concept” system that they will demonstrate in Las Vegas with femtocells manufactured by Samsung Electronics Co and a $50 antenna from Wilson Electronics Inc.

    They said that with a little more work, they could have weaponized it for stealth attacks by packaging all equipment needed for a surveillance operation into a backpack that could be dropped near a target they wanted to monitor.

    For example, a group interested in potential mergers might place such a backpack in Manhattan restaurants frequented by investment bankers. Verizon’s website said the device has a 40-foot range, but the researchers believe that could be expanded by adding specialized antennas.

    The iSEC researchers are not the first to warn of vulnerabilities in femtocells, but claim to be the first to hack the femtocells of a U.S. carrier and also the first running on a wireless standard known as CDMA.

    Other hacking experts have previously uncovered security bugs in femtocells used by carriers in Europe.

    CTIA, a wireless industry group based in Washington, in February released a report that identified femtocells as a potential point of attack.

    John Marinho, CTIA’s vice president for cybersecurity and Technology, said that the group is more concerned about other potential cyber threats, such as malicious apps. He is not aware of any case where attacks were launched via femtocells.

    Still, he said, the industry is monitoring the issue: “Threats change every day.”

    Hi,
    Maybe Morgan should listen to his wife today trying to have him rested and in comeback shape. And I also hope his comment from bullish Abigail Doolittle (CNBC) on $30/share is confirmed.

    Incase you missed this... This is from a newbie poster, Chris H.

    This is my first time post and I would just like to inform the Crackberry community that my company is now allowing upgrades for their slew of BB's to either the new Z10 or Q10. This is a large company of 130K+. There is no BYOD here, although, some employees are permitted to order an iPhone under special circumstances. I believe that the corporate adoption for BB's will be there, it just takes time for the IT departments to deploy BES, test the new BB's and then replace the aging company BB's. As a note, I couldn't replace my BB until it was used for at least 2 years.

    Not sure about how factual the claim is but nonetheless...

    Read it. His positive indicator is that RM and WIP is growing fast:
    'A company ramping up for increased demand may increase raw materials and work-in-progress inventory at a faster rate when it expects robust future growth. As such, we might consider oversized growth in those categories to offer a clue to a brighter future, and a clue that most other investors will miss. We call it 'positive inventory divergence.'"

    Demand for B10 handsets is far lower than analysts expected. High numbers of "in the manufacturing pipeline" handsets is simply more indication of BBRY management's inability to gauge/react to market demand.

    Even more BB10 devices on the way to languish with the rest of their swollen inventory is anything but a positive sign. Google "Playbook writedown" for the probable future.

    "The madness of Q5 pricing" (Forbes):
    The Madness Of BlackBerry Q5 Pricing - Forbes

    "The only way BlackBerry can retain a viable smartphone platform is to sell devices that are competitive in emerging markets where smartphone usage is now spreading to middle class from the narrow slice of the most affluent consumers. And this is why the Q5 pricing is so astounding."

    Wouldn't it be nice if senior management would realize their desperate situation and, for once, not overprice their BB10 handets? It may not be too late for them to get a clue about the Q5.

    A10 will give them another clear chance. 720P vs the new high end 1080p standard. Dual core vs quad core standard (see the Snapdragon 800 rumoured for the Note 3 / bigger HTC One etc. It is a beast, particularly for GPU). Specs are Blaize info, who is apparently in the loop. If they release at more than $49 for the A10 on contract in the US, the fork will be stuck in even deeper.

    Doesn't this ignore that the new BB7 device can serve exactly these markets, at a reasonable price point, with the benefit of data compression? Even if the Q5 device fails to sell at its price point, BlackBerry seems well positioned to continuing continue competing in emerging markets with BB7. Why does the Forbes article fail to mention that potential?

    Perhaps because the new BB7 device does not exist in the market yet? And the fact that there is no pricing info, reasonable or not, for their throwback device? And the fact that Heins et al have repeatedly and continuously said BB10 is the future for BBRY handsets? And, well you get the idea I hope.

    Coming soon means very little from BBRY I am afraid.

    Because BB7 isn't the future of BlackBerry.

    BB10 needs to be successful, to be successful it needs a user base and ever BB7 device is one less person that could be buying a BB10 device. It is a sales and BB will make money on it... but in the long run it might hurt them to contiue their legacy devices.

    HUGE MISTAKE not to have one of the requirements for BB10 to be backwards compatible with the existing user base. Even if it were only on newer BB7 devices sold in the last year. But whatever the reason was for the dual core it is hurting them now.

    Apple investigating reports woman killed while answering recharging iPhone 5
    SINGAPORE — Reuters
    Published Monday, Jul. 15 2013, 12:32 PM EDT
    Last updated Monday, Jul. 15 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

    Apple Inc, is investigating an accident in which a Chinese woman was killed by an electric shock when answering a call on her iPhone 5 while it was charging, the U.S. technology company said on Monday.

    Last Thursday, Ma Ailun, a 23-year-old woman from China’s western Xinjiang region and a flight attendant with China Southern Airlines, was electrocuted when she took a call on the charging mobile telephone, the official Xinhua news agency quoted police as saying on Sunday.

    “We are deeply saddened to learn of this tragic incident and offer our condolences to the Ma family. We will fully investigate and cooperate with authorities in this matter,” Apple said in an e-mail.

    Apple declined to comment on details, such as whether this was an isolated case.

    Ma’s sister tweeted on Sina’s microblog saying that Ma collapsed and died after using her charging iPhone 5 and urged users to be careful, a message that went viral on the site.

    In April, Apple apologized to Chinese consumers and altered iPhone warranty policies in its second-biggest market after its after-sales service suffered more more than two weeks of condemnation by the state-run media.

    I really don't get this whole backwards compatibility complaint. It's not an upgrade, its a completely different platform. Heck, my 9700 couldn't update to OS7 so why would a 2 year old device be compatible with a completely different OS that runs differently, has different hardware requirements, and is completely touch as opposed to the physical navigation keys.

    Although BB7 isn't the future of BlackBerry, it is still very relevant in many countries. To provide those customers with a cheap viable option is a great move in my opinion. Heck, there are even those in first world countries that want a newer OS7 device in order to be able to continue with that platform and continue with BIS.

    Some bring up the fact that Nokia has been able to accommodate the low end but that is not with Windows. It's an OS that doesn't require a lot of power and can get away with lower end specs. Just look at the Asha. It's a very outdated OS yet they are bringing out a new phone to support a certain market and nobody would call that the "future" of OS's. Why is it cool for them to do this yet if BlackBerry does it, it moving backwards and a poor move? They have an opportunity to capitalize on a proven platform that is still in demand in many areas of the world.
